I Love To Read Month
On Tuesday I visited the Gray academy for I Love To Read Month. I read from "The Lost Locket" for grade 3 and a new, as yet unpublished picture book I have written for grade 1. (Which they loved and that was encouraging.) We made up a story with the grade one class and the grade 3's had more questions than there was time for. It was really great when I asked the children what their favourite book was and two of them said "The Proof that Ghosts Exist." When I said that I thought it was for older kids when I wrote it they were stunned- not realizing I was the author- of course with my friend Perry Nodelman! That was cool.

A Life Cut Short
The cover of this book is particularly haunting. This photo is of a young girl who did not survive The Holocaust. I look at her and wonder who she was and what exactly happened to her, and then think about who she might have become.

Pieces of the Past, my new book launches in April 2013
My new book is finally done and available on Amazon and will soon be in bookstores. It is a Holocaust book called Pieces of the Past, set in Winnipeg in 1948 about a young Jewish orphan who arrives in the city and then begins to look back over her life during the war. A very haunting thing - the picture is of a young girl, name unknown, who perished during The Holocaust. There are 6 million people who were murdered. We can't tell all their stories but we can try to remember that each one had a story and a life that was precious and a life that was ripped away.
